A drive to help people and a passion for finance attracted Eric to the financial services industry. In 1993, he began a career with a small financial firm and quickly grasped the fundamentals of the industry, which allowed him to rapidly advance to the position of Regional Vice President. In this position, Eric helped the company grow from five branch offices to fifteen branch offices, with his office reaching Archon status. In 1999, an opportunity was presented to him, featuring the vision of adding a multi-services approach to a financial planning firm. Thus began Eric’s affiliation with Trilogy.

Preparation for retirement is extremely important, and it extends well beyond finances. That’s why you need to work on your retirement compatibility with your partner way before you stop working.
When selecting a Financial Advisor, it’s important to know they will be looking out for you and the money you worked hard for all your life. Not all financial advisors are the same. When considering a financial advisor to partner with, it’s important to know if they are fiduciaries, meaning they will be ethically obligated to work in your best interests to help you reach your goals.
In addition to awareness, you need action. You need focused, decisive and immediate action to see change and to get yourself back on the road to financial independence.
